Evony Inn

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

In Evony, the Inn is used to recruit Heroes which benefits your city immensely. Increasing the level of your Inn allows more Heroes of higher level to be recruited. The quality of available Heroes varies respectful to your Inn level. For example: You may find 5 heroes in a level 5 Inn.

The best way to find an amazing hero is to keep your Inn at level 1. This is because at level 1, the heroes remain at level 7 or below. This means that your chance of finding a level 1 hero with a high level of an individual stat is fairly good. In fact, I can tell you now – I have only once found a good hero in an Inn that was above level 10 and I have found over 50 heroes with base stat of 69 or higher.

There are two main ways to finding a good hero (base 65+ of attack, politics, or intelligence).

1. Demolish your Inn and re-build using the Speed Up button. Continue to demolish and re-construct until you find a satisfactory hero.

2. Recruit the hero from your level 1 Inn regardless of how good it is. Go to your Feasting Hall and dismiss the bad heroes. The list in your Inn should have been refreshed. Continue to recruit and dismiss until you find that amazing hero. The only down side to this is the gold consumption, however, since the heroes are all level 7 and below, gold should not be an issue.

Importance of Heroes

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

So everybody talks about the importance of range, the importance of your technology levels…but what really is the most important aspect of Evony? The answer is here and now.

Heroes are the most important part of Evony. You’re about to find out why.

Heroes are the foundation of a strong civilization.

1. A hero with high politics level increases your resource production. The higher your politics, the more resources you will obtain per hour. Resources are the supplies you need to build buildings, research technology, and train troops. Undoubtedly, without a lot of resources you’re going to fall behind. +1 Heroes

A hero with high politics level decreases construction time. The higher your politics, the less time it’ll take to finish your buildings. Obviously, the quicker you get things done, the farther you’ll be ahead. +1 Heroes

2. A hero with a high attack level decreases troop training speed. The higher your attack, the faster you’ll finish your troops. As your army is the most important part of your city, this is extremely helpful. Finishing 1,000 archers in 4 hours or 24 hours makes a huge difference. +1 Heroes

A hero with a high attack level boosts your army in battle. The higher your attack, the more powerful each unit of yours is. For example: If I had 10,000 archers and you had 20,000 archers – I could win if I had a very high level hero with attack. +1 Heroes

3. A hero with a high intelligence level decreases research time. The higher your intelligence, the faster you’re complete technology researches. This is very important because when you get to researching level 10’s it starts going over 100, 200, and even 300 hours to complete. +1 Heroes

If you stop and think about it: there are few parts of Evony that are done without the assistance of heroes. You need them to train, build, and research. You need heroes to attack and defend.

Let’s move on to the future of Evony. As we saw in the sneak peek of the Age II beta server, heroes’ roles are going to be increase immensely.

From what we observed, Age 2 will have heroes who can be equipped and upgraded with armor, steeds, and weapons. In addition, we are guessing a few new attributes to heroes are probably going to be added. These include moral & strength. +1 Heroes

So think about it for a while…heroes are the essence of Evony. You need an amazing hero to be #1.

This leads into the final statement: the Holy Helm of Mars gives you a hero with base 80 of one stat or higher. The Holy Helm of Mars is the most valuable item you can get in Evony simply because of that base stat. Anyone with that huge advantage of 10-15 attack points will win. My level 200 hero has 280 attack whilst your level 200 hero has 260. I will nearly always come out on top. +1 Heroes

So…think about it.

Evony Heroes

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Heroes are the foundation of a strong army, a wealthy city, and powerful scouts. They are required to lead your army into battle. If used effectively, you can gain a lot of prestige and honor. If used in the wrong way, or not used at all, you will be over-run.

To begin, you need an Inn and a Feasting Hall. You can build these by clicking on an open slot in your town.

Inn: This is where you can find and recruit a hero. The number of possible heroes to recruit increases as the level of your Inn does. The higher level Inn, the more options you have.

Feasting Hall: Everybody needs to live somewhere and the heroes are no exception. The Feasting Hall provides a place for the heroes to live. The number of heroes you can own depends on the level of the Feasting Hall. If you have a level 4 Feasting Hall, you can own/have four heroes.

Castellan/Mayor: In the Feasting Hall there is an option called “Appoint Mayor”. This allows you to choose one of your heroes to lead the town. Mayors do not carry over for different cities, so you’ll need to appoint a new one for each city. Mayors cannot lead your troops into battle or help scout out a city. In order to make your resources maximized, read more about it by clicking HERE.

I’m sure you’d like some elaboration on what each attribute of a hero does. A hero has five stats: Politics, Attack, Intelligence, Loyalty, and Salary. The only three that matter when appointing a Mayor are Politics, Attack, and Intelligence.

Politics: When a Mayor is appointed his Politics level decreases building time and makes your resource collection faster.

Attack: When a Mayor is appointed his Attack level lowers the time it takes to train troops. The higher level Attack, the faster your troops will be trained. The Mayor’s Attack level also helps fortify your city when you are under attack.

Intelligence: When a Mayor is appointed his Intelligence lowers the time it takes to research technology. In addition, if you send a hero with a scouting party, it will reveal more information if it has high Intelligence.

Loyalty: Each Hero has his/her own loyalty. The lower the loyalty of a hero, he/she has a higher chance of being captured and persuaded by an enemy upon defeat.

Salary: This is the most self-explanatory of all the stats. A hero loves to get paid, and thus his salary. He is paid every hour. The hero costs 20 gold for every level it has. For example: A level 3 hero would cost 60 gold per hour, and a level 40 hero would cost 800 gold per hour.

Leveling up:

Every time you upgrade your hero, you can add one point to any of the hero’s attributes.
